In bed

This game requires two or more consenting adults, and a Chinese restaurant.  After dinner, everybody reads the papers in their fortune cookies aloud, the implicit suffix to each fortune being ” … in bed.”  The resulting advice is generally practical, and often quite encouraging.  I wonder whether the people who write these fortunes are in on the game.  Here are some of my “keepers;”

  • The skills you have gathered will one day come in handy.
  • No one is happy who does not think himself so.
  • There is a tendency to carry activities too far.
  • Taking a chance at something new will pay off.
  • Believe in your abilities; confidence will lead you on.
  • Your short term goal will soon be realized.
  • It would be wise to cut expectations in half.
  • You have an ambitious nature and may make a name for yourself.
  • You have a natural grace and great consideration for others.
  • You will excel in something in which another failed.
  • You have a yearning for perfection.
  • A happy event awaits you.
  • You will be pleasantly surprised by a close friend.
  • You will soon meet a helpful person.
  • There is a prospect of a thrilling time ahead for you.
  • Today you will find something you have been looking for.

And a particular favorite of mine,

  • Listen to the wisdom of the old.
